Air Quality Monitoring

The air quality monitoring (particulate matter less than or equal to 10 micrometers = PM10) are conducted every six days in the community of El Tucan.

For this last quarter were recorded PM10 values ​​between 88.7 ug/m3 82.0.3ug/m3 and in all cases under the rules 2610ESM_109 ambient air quality of the Panama Canal Authority, which sets 150ug / m3 and maximum allowable limit.
